I could see this playing in my head like a tv drama while listening to the audiobook. It’s about two completely different women with different life goals. Porn money & wannabe mummy is a comedy about lives curveballs.

Poppy wants to be a mum. She’s been trying for a while and the stresses of not getting pregnant weigh her down. She’s in her thirties and her life isn’t going the way she planned. Her dad needs her support while her sister-in-law seems to be steeling the show. Can she find her own h

Favorite Quotes:

“Mum snaps. ‘I brought up all those moody, smelly boys. Constantly trying to clean jizz out of every blanket they ever touched. I’m finally getting my own back with my own pack of girls.’”

“He sneezes, so bloody loudly that everyone in the room stops to stare at him. That must be a joke sneeze. Surely no one really sneezes that loud. ‘Bless me and save me!’ he shrieks, pulling out a hanky and blowing his nose like a trumpet.”

Porn Money & Wannabe Mummy is the third book following Poppy and Jazz, and it’s my favourite of the series. There was plenty of laughter packed into this one, ensuring you’re happy to power through the pages to see how everything comes together.

Although this can be read as a standalone, it’ll hit harder if you’ve read the two prior books and know the characters. There is plenty of development in this one, and it’s great to see how far the characters have come from when we were first introduced t

Porn, Money and Wannabe Mummy.


Laura is a sensational writer she can make you laugh when your feeling blue. She never writes anything less than 5 stars 


We rejoin Poppy and Jazz at another mega stage of their life. Poppy so desperately wants to be a mum but all the sex in the world isn't helping 

Jazz finally has her money but doesn't realise the effects cash can have.

I have never read a book that remind me so much of me and my best friend. The laughter and the sorrow, the tears and the giggles. La

This review is based on an ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest opinion.

This series needs to be read together. There were a few parts that I gathered were explained in other books of the series. This was a very funny look at the realities of trying to have children. The other parts just detracted from that.

Porn Money & Wannabe Mummy by Laura Barnard is a romantic comedy that I listened to on audio narrated by Emma Riches. This is the third book in The Debt & The Doormat Series.

I absolutely love Laura’s books! They always leave me with a smile on my face. I absolutely loved all the quirky characters in this series.

Emma did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

I would highly recommend this series if you love Chick Lits or Romantic Comedies.

I am absolutely and utterly blown away by Author Laura Barnard. This series (although all three books can be read as standalones) is just out of this world, amazingly written and has you in absolute stitches.

I just love the dilemmas,drama and out right insane antics of Poppy and Jazz. I have loved every minute of Porn Money and Wannabe Mummy and was absolutely gutted when I finished it.

OMG! This amazing book by Laura Barnard had me crying with laughter.
The wittiness from the characters is pure genus and works

My first words are, Oh my goodness , that was 100 % the best.

I have never laughed so much for a long time , my neighbors could hear me !


I know first hand what its like trying to fall pregnant finding that all your friends are pregnant those who were trying after you, I could relate with Poppy so much...

Poppy has a huge wonderful heart and her throwing skills are the best , flinging the poop was so funny and the consequences were hilarious I am surprised you didn’t hear me laughing my head off!

Porn Money & Wannabe Mummy is the third book in The Debt & the Doormat series by Laura Barnard. Jazz and Poppy are now back and as usual, they are dealing with hilarious situations and some clearly debatable ones!

They feel relatable and likable because of their quirks and personalities but their lives are far from being ordinary. The laughter, the giggles and the sorrow, Poppy and Jazz always make me

@laurabarnardauthor does it again with a 5⭐️ hilarious chick lit!⁣

I had the pleasure of listening to Porn Money Wannabe Mummy on audio and I was howling laughing at times. Thank you so much!⁣

Jazzy was a spit fire and Poppy was dramatic in the best ways. Their friendship was the definition of true best friends. I loved the fun they had, following their amazing friendship, the embarrassing moments, and the hard times. They never let each other down. ⁣

I honestly can't get enough of this series! I just love Poppy and Jazz, and these books just get more and more hilarious as they go on. In fact i now have a huge book hangover from this books and I'm gutted that there is no forth book as I'm dying to see what the future has in store now for them! In fact I'm pretty sure this series could continue following them into middle age and old age as I'm certain the stories they would have to tell would be knicker wettingly funny!

This book is the third instalment from ‘The Debt and The Doormat’ series but can also be read as a stand alone with no problems.
I read this book in a couple of sittings and absolutely loved it!! It is full of hilarious moments (just like all of Laura’s books!) that had me giggling along uncontrollably!!

This was a nice continuation of the adventures of Jazz and Poppy. I like that the story follows both of them and includes events beyond the typical "happily ever after". I liked it even more than the second book, so if you've listened to the first two you should definitely listen to this one too.

Emma Riches was an amazing narrator. I'm always impressed when narrators include actual singing in their performance. It was my first time listening to her, but I'd listen to more by her in the future.

Does not disappoint

Following poppy and jazz through all 3 books. Reading their stories as they grow up, settle down have babies, just like other 2 books there is lots of laughter and tears.
Laura barnard is definitely on top now as one of my favourite chick lit author.....the first book started as a freebie that I accidentally came across..I gave it ago and hooked, can't wait to start on Laura's other novels now.

What a fantastic end to a wonderful book series, I have absolutely loved reading each of the books! I should have known not to read this in a quiet public setting because I just couldn't help but laugh out loud throughout the book but I have to say there were also moments of angst too. An absolute must read. I loved the crazy that is Poppy and the other characters in the books are perfect too. I'd totally recommend this book that I just couldn't put down!! ...more

This last book in the series did not disappoint. With the crazy words from Laura and the excellent narration from Emma it’s yet again a winning combination. There’s more crazy shenanigans going on in Poppy and Jazz life’s. I highly recommend this series if you need cheering up.

Porn Money and Wannabe Mummy is the new release from author, Laura Barnard, and the third instalment in The Debt & The Doormat series. I have read a few of Barnard’s earlier books and always find them very entertaining, as such I was very keen to give this new one a try.

This book is beyond hilarious. Laura has taken everything funny or disastrous that could ever happen in a group of friends and piled it onto Poppy and her lot. I was hooked from the beginning and often giggling aloud, with the mishaps being so funny I just couldn't remain silent.

I was won over by Poppy in this story. She has the best attitude, and even if she can sometimes come off as a prude, she has genuine care, kindness and love for those around her. She is such a good person, at heart, tha

I am new to Laura’s work and I can honestly say this won’t be the last book I’ll be reading. From the very first page I was laughing. I like to read in bed of a night but unfortunately this was extremely difficult with a sleeping husband and having to suppress my giggles. While reading earlier in the evening, my family thought I had gone crazy staring at my Kindle and constantly chuckling to myself. I’d really like to meet Laura and h

A few pages into chapter 1 and I find that I have laughed out loud at least three times already! Yes, I LOVE Laura Barnard‘s humour, and her Debt & the Doormat series is the best. The story opens with Christmas day at Poppy’s parents house; it’s a large family get together where her mum, Meryl, is already sloshed at 11am! Poppy’s mum is hilarious – cringeworthy, but hilarious. It’s a great opening from the onset.

The Debt & the Doormat series continues in a fun and natural way as we meet our favo
